: I first computer when you turn it on it sounds like it is going to load and then all of a sudden it stops completely.....
: The other computer will not even show any sign of power when you turn it own.. I have traded out the power supply on it. And I am going to replace the mother board next I just wanted to know if there maybe something cheaper I could try first....


Your approach will eventually work (if you get enough new parts) but it is likely to be EXPENSIVE. If you have components that can be swapped between your two systems you can do pretty well using parts that are KNOWN GOOD. Suggest that you work through a very organized troubleshooting approach, starting with the mainboard by following Tekram's mainboard troubleshooting method (works for ANY mainboard) at this looong URL:

When you get the mainboard working add components back one at a time (two at most) until you find the trouble maker or you get your PC going reliably.

Good Luck,
Henry
